I'll be covering a traditional Mangyan wedding this weekend. The wedding is not til Saturday but I've decided to go down from Baguio earlier to have time for visiting family and friends.
In the first photo is John Zachary, my one month old nephew. Next is one year old Dylan Ashton, my godson. In the last photo is Carmela Isabel, my three year old niece. I'm thankful for the rare chances I get to spend with them. Little kids never fail to show me life is simple and colorful. To be happy, all you need is a song, a dance or a gummy bear. :)

(An amateur's take on why photography is an art)
I was invited to speak on digital photography as part of a former room mate's report on contemporary art. I was in panic mode for a couple of days as 1) I do not have extensive knowledge and experience yet to be a good resource speaker. 2) I have developed stage fright over the years so I tend to have panic attacks before, during and after speaking which is really bad.
Anyway, I prepared this to "save me" when I am no longer making sense during the talk.hehe.

Goodness, it's Sunday again! The week surely knows how to fly.
I got up at 4am, incredibly without difficulty compared to working days when I really need to wake up that early. Ha! Maybe I should try thinking it's always a weekend.:)
Planned to post another sunrise image but ended up with this one instead. :)
I was walking along the market area on my way to the La Trinidad jeepney terminal when I heard shouts of glee. As I turned, I saw two kids were jumping excitedly as a man (most likely their father) was re-arranging the sacks in his cart. Then, I saw the kids boarding the cart, laughing their hearts out. They'll be getting a joy ride today! Yay!
Happy Sunday ! :)

The quote may not be the perfect fit for the photo but it's something I stumbled upon which made me smile because it's true for me. I often complain first before counting my blessings. This should serve as a reminder to reverse my practice and start being more thankful to daily gifts from this universe.
